Elburg

There is not so much sewing going on here. I'm still working on projects I can't show at this moment.

Maybe you like to see some pictures I took when we visited Elburg about a month ago. It's a nice old place here in the Netherlands.








Some beautiful old houses on a street.





The saddle from an old delivery bicycle.




This is a typical Dutch fishermans boat. It could be 100 years odl and maybe even more. I love the color of the wood and all the browns.


Since I bought my DSRL camera 1.5 years ago, I'm more and more into photography. It looks like that it is going to be my second hobby! I have to learn a lot but I enjoy it so much.

Lovely pictures Lucy! I’ve never been to Elburg. I think I should!

Good luck with all the projects!

How exciting to wonder about what projects you are working on; it must spell publication of some sort!! Wonder what kind of wood the boat is, that is so beautiful and your photos are gorgeous.

Lucy, I love your posts on your quilting projects, but also appreciate your posts on places you visit in the Netherlands. My husband and I lived in Maastricht for 5 months in 2007 and are planning another 5 month stay this fall. I'll put down some of the places I read about in your blog on our list. Thanks again. I love the Netherlands!!

Elburg looks like such a peaceful place to live. Your photography is very good. You can only get better the more you do it - like with anything else. Thanks for posting these. I love to see what other bloggers see.

Dear Lucy, Just yesterday I bought Quiltmania No. 70 and was happy to see your smiling face ! They wrote a very nice article about you, and your beautiful house, well done ! I loved all your mini quilts up on a wall together, and I will look out for the next editions where they showcase more of your work. Well done !

Lovely photos! I especially love the soothing comforting soft colors of the first picture, grays, terra cotta, soft dark am teal. I am imagining them in a quilt.

Digital has made photography so much more accessible...have fun with it! You have a good eye and that is the toughest part!

Elburg is a favorite place to visit for me Lucy! It is not all that far from us so I love going up with a friend. We have a favorite place for lunch and spend time drooling over the things in the stitching shop as well as many of the woonwinkels. Just walking around all the little streets is a real treat and like a museum. Good that you got to take a break in this special place. Hope you are well!

Hugs en groetjes ~
Heidi
